Celebrity hairstylist Ted Gibson has taken on a big-name teen client: Olympic athlete Gabby Douglas. Gibson spoke to the Daily Beast about criticisms of Douglas' hair, saying "I believe all that talk had to take a toll on her. How could it not? You’ve worked so hard for something and then people tear you apart for little or nothing. My job in working with all women from all walks of life is to not only to give them this amazing look but to also work with them to feel good about being in their own skin." [Daily Beast]
